Hi,

 

I was wondering if anyone needs help in their studio on the weekends around houston texas.  Heres the story,  I am a laboratory manager for refinery and I just moved here from california. I used to have a wheel and kiln but I had to leave it behind.  I have hashimoto's disease and stress takes its toll on me.  Pottery really calms me down.  So I am looking to help out in any way I can and learn more about pottery/ceramics while doing it.  

 

I work with a young group of chemical engineers and they always want to go out late and drink 24/7 on the weekends, because of my condition I really can't do that anymore so I need something productive to do.  I don't want pay I just want to help out in any way I can. Heavy lifting, wedging clay, loading a kiln whatever just put me to work.  I am also thinking about taking classes to get back into it pottery.

 

Don't know if this is in the wrong section mods please move it if necessary thanks,

Another option could be clay teaching centers in the area where you can get a studio card and work on your clay whenever a class is not in session. Usually you have to take an introductory class to get familiar with studio procedures first. Often you will find there is a good core group of regulars and lots of available times to work. The city's Parks and Recreation Dept might have classes and studio time too. Good luck in your hunt.
